Summer 2019 brings exciting changes to the EH&S Occupational Safety and Health Program. Industrial Hygiene and Safety Programs are merging with the Asbestos, Lead, and Construction Safety Program to form the new Healthy Buildings Program (HBP). This refocus brings a more holistic approach to health and safety in Stanford’s built environment.
Service areas of the Healthy Buildings Program include:
- Construction and facility maintenance support to safely manage hazardous building materials such as asbestos, lead paint, and mold.
- Workplace health stewardship in areas such as hearing conservation, respiratory protection, and indoor air quality.
- Review of new building design and construction materials to promote healthy building occupancy.
- Project support for laboratory, storage tank and emergency generator decommissioning, construction safety, and playground safety.
